Lewis says he’s not the only threat to security
HOMELAND star Damian Lewis insists the hit US show could continue without him. The show, which also stars Claire Danes, has been hailed as the best new US drama on TV. British actor Lewis (pictured with Danes), who plays Nicholas Brody, says the creators are of the opinion that you can’t flog a dead horse forever. ‘‘It will run its natural course. If that’s only four years, it will only be four years . . . and there’s no guarantee that my character will be around,’’ Lewis tells Radio Times. The Golden Globe winner says the series could simply rebirth itself each year by finding a new threat. ‘‘So you can go past Brody because the anchor of the show is in the CIA, it’s in the threat to homeland security,’’ Lewis says. Lewis recently revealed he has signed a seven-year Homeland contract, but insists his deal doesn’t guarantee a future on the series. His co-star David Harewood’s character David Estes was recently killed off in the drama.
